For my friend's son's birthday, I made him a Ben 10 birthday cake because it's his favourite show at the moment. I got a picture of Ben 10 from the internet and printed it in reverse. I then covered it with wax paper and traced the outline in chocolate fudge icing. I then made a huge batch of white frosting and took bits out to colour them. I made peach, green, brown (add cocoa powder), yellow, grey and blue.
I started with the logo - I piped the "10" in white, leaving gaps for the black circles on the "0". I filled in the "Ben" with the green and yellow and merged them together in the middle.
Next I used the white to fill in his eyes, T-shirt and shoes. Then I used the peach to do all his skin. By this point, the fudge outline was beginning to melt so I had to refreeze before carrying on.
I then filled in the green trousers, the grey Omnitrix and the chocolate hair. I froze it again while I made a vanilla cake and covered in the blue frosting. I used the leftover blue to put a layer over by Ben 10 picture, completing the buttercream transfer. I flipped the image onto the cake and peeled off the paper, leaving Ben 10 on my cake. I used black piping gel to fill in the black on the logo, the T-shirt and the fronts of his trainers.
The birthday boy loved the fact Ben 10 had come to help him celebrate his birthday, and made all my efforts worth it!
I made this homemade Ben 10 Alien Force birthday cake for my son's 6th birthday. It's just a basic 9" two layer cake made from a Betty Crocker box mix and Betty Crocker frosting from the can between the layers and on top below the fondant.
This was my first time using fondant and from now on every time I use it in the future I'll use the Wilton flavoring to add taste to it. After I put the layer of fondant over the top of the cake I rolled out another piece for the character. My mom printed out a picture of the character from the computer and then re-sized it to fit. I cut out his body and the wings so I could trace around them with a Wilton Cake Writer in black.
Then I used a red cake writer to fill in the body, a yellow one for the wings and face, and a green one for the eyes. Then I colored some Wilton Ready to Use Decorator Icing with Wilton kelly green and leaf green icing colors. I piped with a small round tip for the wording and shadowing on the top, and piped with a big round tip for the balls around the base of the cake.
All together this was definitely the fastest cake I have ever decorated.
I got the idea for this Ben 10 Birthday Cake from several other ideas online. I baked a 6 inch circle cake for the center of the watch and cut the band from another small cake I made. I used a star tip to pipe the icing on. I used piping gel tinted green for the center of the watch. I cut out fondant letters and circles for the green effect. Everyone loved this cake.
This Ben 10 Birthday Cake was made for the 6th birthday of my God child. He likes Ben 10 so this cake gave me an inspiration to make 1. This cake was made of moist chocolate cake covered with royal icing. Some of the decorations were made of sugar paste icing and fondant.
